The Shadow of Your Smile

What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are
to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure;
but, scattered along life's pathway,
the good they do is inconceivable.

-  Joseph Addison
(01 May 1672 - 17 June 1719)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Every day's a good day to smile - especially if we don't particularly feel like smiling.

  From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 10/03/14 - "Magic Bank Account":
Never looked at it this way.

The Magic Bank Account

Imagine that you had won the following *PRIZE* in a contest: Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 in your private account for your use. However, this prize has rules. The set of rules:

1. Everything that you didn't spend during each day would be taken away from you.

2. You may not simply transfer money into some other account.

3. You may only spend it.

4. Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another $86,400 for that day.

5. The bank can end the game without warning; at any time it can say, “Game Over!". It can close the account and you will not receive a new one.

What would you personally do?

You would buy anything and everything you wanted right? Not only for yourself, but for all the people you love and care for. Even for people you don't know, because you couldn't possibly spend it all on yourself, right?

You would try to spend every penny, and use it all, because you knew it would be replenished in the morning, right?

ACTUALLY, This GAME is REAL ...Shocked ??? YES!

Each of us is already a winner of this *PRIZE*. We just can't seem to see it.


1. Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life.

2. And when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is not credited to us.

3. What we haven't used up that day is forever lost.

4. Yesterday is forever gone.

5. Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time without warning...

So, what will you do with your 86,400 seconds?

Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars. Think about it and remember to enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think.

So take care of yourself, be happy, love deeply, and enjoy life! Here's wishing you a wonderful and beautiful day. Start “spending”....


   Thank you for this reminder, Wayne!

BONUS PAPER TUBE PROJECTS (Sorry, not theme related):
- Many More!

BONUS RECIPES (Sorry, not theme related): - Biscuits with Sausage Gravy - "Biscuits with gravy are a staple at most Southern breakfast tables. Just making true Southern country-style gravy and biscuits can take an entire morning...and we don't usually have that time! Y'all are gonna love this shortcut recipe!" - Pulled Pork Sandwiches - "In the South, there's a barbecue joint on every corner and each one boasts the best pulled pork sandwiches. The Southern cooks in our test kitchen helped create a version that comes pretty close to that authentic flavor, but with a shortcut or two." - Praline Squares - With our easy recipe for Praline Squares, you don't have to take a trip to New Orleans to enjoy the taste of pralines, a nutty southern treat." - OOOH! This is one of my all-time favorite recipes - an absolute must for Holiday Cookie Trays!

Six Truths in Life
1. You cannot stick your tongue out and look up at the ceiling at the same time, a physical impossibility.
2. All idiots, after reading #1 will try it.
3. And discover #1 is a lie.
4. You are smiling now because you are an idiot.
5. You soon will forward this to another idiot.
6. There is still a stupid smile on your face.
I sincerely apologize about this but I'm an idiot and I needed company... Have a bright sunny day!

    GIGGLES! Thanks, Wayne!

  Very nice! Thank you, Shari!


From - 10/24/14:

A little guy was sitting in a bar, drinking his beer, minding his own business when all of a sudden a great big dude came in and -- WHACK!! -- knocked him off the bar stool and onto the floor.

The big dude said, "That was a karate chop from Korea."

The little guy thought, "GEEZ," but he got back up on the stool and started drinking again when all of a sudden -- WHACK!! -- the big dude knocked him down AGAIN and said, "That was a judo chop from Japan."

So the little guy had had enough of this... He got up, brushed himself off and quietly left. The little guy was gone for an hour or so.

When he returned, without saying a word, he walked up behind the big dude and -- WHAM!!!" -- knocked the big dude off his stool, knocking him out cold!!! The little guy looked at the bartender and said, "When he gets up, tell him that's a crowbar from Sears.

The Shadow of Your Smile

Music by Johnny Mandel (b. 23 Nov 1925)

Lyrics by Paul Francis Webster (20 Dec 1907 – 18 Mar 1984), September, 1965

The shadow of your smile
When you are gone
Will color all my dreams
And light the dawn

Look into my eyes, my love, and see
All the lovely things, you are, to me

Our wistful little star
It was far, too high
A teardrop kissed your lips
And so, so did I

Now when I remember spring
All the joy that love can bring
I will be remembering
The shadow of your smile
